REVIEW: Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

Leave a comment

12405612Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good is Kevin Smith’s newest book. This is the first of his books that I’ve read but I am a fan of everything else he does so I figured I’d dive into one of his books. Overall it’s kind of disappointing, though a lot of that is just because from watching his spoken word shows and podcasts I’d heard most of these stories. Though there were parts of it that I really liked, he goes way more in-depth into something’s than I’ve heard before including his problems with Bruce Willis and the behind the scenes of getting your movie out there. At the end of the day I liked the book but not as much as I was expecting too. If you’re a Kevin Smith fan you’ll most likely enjoy it, however being a Kevin Smith fan may also be a reason you’re not super into it. It’s entertaining and worth a read, just don’t expect anything amazing.
